Blessings Abounding



Meet the twins: Baby A and Baby B. Kristen and Chris found out yesterday they are having two babies, doubling their pleasure and doubling our fun! Chris had to work for the appointment yesterday, which also happened to be Kristen's 34th. birthday, so I got to go along and see the sonogram! The kids won't find out the babies' gender(s) for another seven weeks or so. The kids came over after Chris got off work for Kristen's birthday dinner (cooked by yours truly and no one got sick or anything!)and the night was even more joyous as we learned Chris' mom is in remission from the leukemia and has only one more round of follow up chemo to go.

We have a busy weekend ahead of us. We're slowly but surely getting down the Christmas things. We like to have everything up and ready to turn on by Thanksgiving Evening. Sat., I've been invited to scrap with a pal at her house and there is yoga that morning. We have a photo sitting for all 5 of us Sunday with Teri's husband, Hector and I think we are heading to Spring Bayou for this with maybe a couple taken in the back yard. And either Monday or Tuesday, Chris is coming over to help E hang the outside lights (that reads to keep E off ladders!).

Have a great Friday!
